Most of the people on the set including her co-star Riteish, director Ravi Jadhav and the crew members used to converse in Marathi (being their mother-tongue), which sort of became a problem for Nargis to understand what the conversation was all about.

For that matter, even producer Krishika Lulla faced the same problem. Interestingly, both Nargis and Krishika used to overhear people talking in Marathi which sort of helped them learning the nuances of the language. This exercise certainly helped the two lovely ladies on the sets. So if you do come across the very international looking Nargis casually break into ‘Kasa kai?’ don’t fall down in shock!
